See inside the last Blockbuster!
April 30th, 2019 under Kellie Pickler. [ Comments: none ]

Back before there was Netflix and Amazon Prime, we had to rent movies at Blockbuster. Then when those services started streaming videos, Blockbuster pretty much went out of business. I saw pretty much because there is only one store left and it is Bend, Oregon.

Today on Pickler & Ben, the hosts spoke to the family that owns that store. Even though it is 2019, it still looks like the ones we visited in 1999. Something Sandi Harding takes a lot of pride in. Besides having walls of DVDs, they still have that candy stand full of goodies you get at the movies. Remember how much fun it was to rent a movie and buy a pack of Sno-Caps so you could Blockbuster and chill?

Do people still go to that store? You betcha. She says 10 new people sign up every day. Families still come to rent movies. New and old. They have films that the streaming services do not have much to the delight of their customers.

Since they are the very last Blockbuster, people send them the old VHS tapes, DVDs and gift cards they find in their house to the store. While a lot of that is currently stored in the backroom, Harding says she plans to display them some day next to all of the Russell Crowe memorabilia they have.

That will be a total trip down memory lane. This whole interview was just that. Am I the only who misses going to the video store and checking out all of the new releases? While I get to do that with Tubi TV, it is just the same.

And TV will not be the same when Pickler & Ben tapes its last episode later this month. I wish there were more talk shows like this one. They do things the others do not like this segment. Seriously, how much fun was this to watch?


Pickler and Ben was not picked up for a third season
April 6th, 2019 under Kellie Pickler. [ Comments: none ]

Kellie Pickler and Ben Aaron announced yesterday that their talk show Pickler and Ben was not picked up for a third season. I think this news is very sad because they did stuff that none of the other talk shows were doing. It was not all about celebrity guests and the same old cooking segments.

It was about trying out new things and sharing it with their audience. They were also willing to be as goofy as they needed to be which made them so likable. They did not take themselves too seriously and that is what we need.

Hopefully, one of the cable stations will give them home because I am going to miss them.

Even though they will be back next year, they will be taping new episodes next month and will be airing repeats until September.


BTWF: Leslie Jordan for Sizzler
February 26th, 2019 under Before They Were Famous, Full House, Kellie Pickler, Leslie Jordan. [ Comments: none ]
Before Leslie Jordan was one of The Cool Kids, his food choices were far from it so he felt cool when he went to Sizzler. How cute was the 33-year-old in that 1988 commercial?

He was not the only future star in this ad, did you spot a 6-year-old Jodie Sweetin?

Back to Jordan, he talked about how he got into acting, moved to Hollywood and started out doing commercials on Pickler and Ben yesterday. My favorite part comes at the end when he says how Betty White knew one of them was going to kill the other one Boston Public. That was such an epic moment on the show.


Pickler and Ben gets taken over by 2 baby otters!!!
February 20th, 2019 under Animals, Kellie Pickler. [ Comments: none ]

You know how on most talk shows when a guest brings any animals on, they don’t let the creatures roam around. Pickler and Ben is unlike all the others. Today, Kellie Pickler and Ben Aaron welcomed 2 Asian small-clawed otters on to the show and within seconds Ping and Pong took over the set.

Pickler and Animal expert Grant Kemmerer were holding the squeaky brothers for the introduction and then they decided to put them in the little pool the show set up for them. I guess they were not interested in it because they jumped down and started running all over the set. They went under the couch, over to the camera to get a closeup, back to the pool and anywhere else they wanted to go.

The only place they did not go was into the audience. Which is smart of their part because if they did, I am sure someone would have taken them home. Who wouldn’t? They are so cute, they make me want to trade in my cat for one of them.

Seriously, they are otterly awwwwdorable, I think the 6-month olds should replace Pickler and Ben on the morning show. No offense to the CMT hosts, but I could watch them for hours and hours. Seriously, aren’t you in love with them too? Those faces are just so sweet.


Chewbacca Mom is now a Stormtrooper!
December 3rd, 2018 under Kellie Pickler. [ Comments: none ]

Two years ago, Chewbacca Mom was as popular as Kim Kardashian’s nude butt. That was then, where is Candace Payne now? She is writing books about spreading the joy and today she was trying out some of this season’s hottest toys on Pickler & Ben.

You cannot have her on without at least one Star Wars toy to play with, so they had one for her. She, Kellie Pickler and Ben Aaron tried on some Stormtrooper masks, and it was not as good as the Wookie. Who cares? Because all we care about is seeing Chewbacca Mom again!
